Walker Street, Northcote

Project update

Homes Victoria is delivering new social and market homes to give more Victorians a safe and secure place to call home.

The Walker Street housing site is located in Northcote, just 5km north of Melbourne’s city centre.

The redevelopment of the site will replace 87 walk-ups that did not comply with current design standards with 257 new homes, consisting of 106 social homes and 151 market homes.

The site will deliver a 21% increase in social housing and first home buyers will be given priority access to purchase a new market home.

The supply of new housing at the site will help tackle the growing problem of housing affordability in Victoria.

Homes Victoria is joining with development partner MAB Corporation, and registered housing association HousingFirst, to redevelop the Walker Street, Northcote site.

Community engagement

Community engagement is an important element of the project at Walker Street Northcote.

Previously, Homes Victoria established a Community Consultative Committee for the site that brought together members of the community to help plan the future of the project. As this project is now underway with plans in place, Homes Victoria is hosting regular community engagement opportunities to keep the community informed about all aspects of the project. We undertake regular community drop-in information sessions as well as facilitated stakeholder briefings.
